Alisa Ghazvini, Ph.D.
Early Childhood Consultant
University of Florida Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies
The Florida Expanding Opportunities for Early Childhood Inclusion Initiative collaborated in the development of Florida's Core Competencies for Early Care and Education. In addition, the group created Targeted Competencies for Specialists Supporting Inclusion. Participants will learn about how the state of Florida has aligned and integrated their cross-sector competencies to promote a comprehensive 'family' of resources supporting early childhood personnel that promotes inclusion.
This presentation covers Florida's:
- Process for developing core competencies for practitioners and TA specialists and the benefits of using a cross-sector approach
- Targeted competencies for specialists supporting inclusion (e.g. PT, OT, SLP) that will guide personnel practices for working in inclusive settings and how they are aligned with the core competencies
